Enhancing Support for Your Fertility Journey

The path to getting pregnant isn’t always straightforward. Having your hopes dashed every month can take an enormous emotional toll on you and your partner.

If you need tests and treatments, it can be physically and financially demanding too. At laya healthcare, we give our members the benefits and services you need to tackle fertility issues head on. We have transformed our fertility benefits to offer more inclusive support, flexibility and choice that better reflect the modern reality and very different journeys that those experiencing fertility difficulties can face when trying for a baby. From preparing your mind and body to accessing cutting-edge treatments, we’ll support you at every stage of your fertility journey.

We are the first health insurance provider to allow its members to claim for fertility benefits on a ‘per year’ basis rather than ‘per lifetime’ with its ‘First Steps’ fertility cover. Were championing diversity, equality and inclusivity by reframing our major fertility benefit ‘First Steps’, to be the first healthcare provider in the industry to start to look at fertility through the lens of all those experiencing it. Dealing with fertility issues is difficult enough, so we’re here to support you throughout your journey. Depending on your scheme and level of cover, here are just some of the benefits and services you can access as a laya healthcare member:

  • Contributions towards fertility tests and treatments
  • Personalised healthy lifestyleplan from your Healthcoach
  • 24/7 Mental Wellbeing SupportProgramme that you can ring any time, as appropriate
  • CareOnCall phone line and
  • GPLive webcam consultations with Irish-registered GPs
